Neapolitan Ice Cream? Challenge 28!

Well, hi again all you stampers out there! I'ts time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. This week our hostess with the mostest is the Vivacious Miss Vicki!! Vicki is challenging us this week to make a card using the colours of Neapolitan Ice Cream. So chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, right? A delicious ice cream and a yummy colour combo to use for your card. I mean, who doesn't love pink and brown?! Oh and since Vicki used the lovely Josephine on her card, that is the stamp you will be in the running to win. Just use your Kraftin' Kimmie stamp on this card and you may be randomly picked to receive Josephine along with her little potion bottle accessory stamp.

For my card, I used You Make Me Happy, a Cindy and Mindy stamp created by the very talented Jean Grant. I love her creations, my very favourite is Bench Friends. O.K., enough of my babbling, back to the card. I used a Stampin' Up DP, but I've had it so long, I can't remember the name of it. I love paisley and I love pink and brown, so this worked perfectly. I used Close to Cocoa for the card base, matted the paisley piece onto it, then I used two other designs of the same pack for the horizontal and the vertical strips. I matted the upright strip on Close to Cocoa and I put a border on the brown strip, using a Pretty in Pink border punched strip. I coloured Cindy and Mindy with my copics, punched out the image with my Labels 4 Nesties and used the smallest Nestie of that set for the sentiment, also on Pretty in Pink. I used Pretty in Pink GG Ribbon and some pink and brown Prima Flowers to finish it off. The sentiment, Smooches, is from the Kraftin' Kimmie set, Everyday Sentiments.

That's it, now it's your turn. I can't wait to see what lovely pink, brown and white (or vanilla) designs you are going to have to show us. If you put your card on a website like Splitcoast, don't forget to put KKSC28 in your keywords, so we can find it.

Don't forget to start checking back next Thursday to start seeing some previews of the new release stamps for May, going on sale at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps next Sunday, the 16th. I promise you won't be disappointed, these images just keep getting better and better.

Have a great weekend,
